CREMASCO, Gabriela da Silva  and  BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes. Integrative review of the psychometric properties of state-trait depression scales. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.2, pp. 98-110. ISSN 2236-6407.

The present study presents an integrative review of the literature on the psychometric properties of State-Trait Depression Scales. The Google Academic and Periodical CAPES databases were consulted and articles published between 1995 and 2017 were included. Of the 151 articles, 14 were analyzed that corresponded to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The results indicated that the instrument has adequate psychometric properties and may be a useful tool in the evaluation of depression, including in the Brazilian context. However, studies are needed that look for other types of evidence of validity, with larger samples and patients diagnosed with depression.

Keywords : depression; psychological tests; psychometric properties.
